Additional extras are needed for the film DOTTY AND SOUL, now filming next week in the Oklahoma City metro area.
DOTTY AND SOUL is a comedy about flamboyant entrepreneur Ethan Cox, who is caught in a racially inappropriate video that immediately goes viral. His hopes of being the man in charge of delivering a self-driving car to the public seem destined to blow up in his face. So he hires his aging mother’s 71 year old caretaker, African-American DOTTY, to be the temporary replacement CEO of his company, until the public furor dies down.
The film is written and directed by Adam Saunders, and is produced by Saunders and Avril Z. Speaks. It stars Saunders as Ethan and legendary actress Leslie Uggams (DEADPOOL, EMPIRE, ROOTS) as Dotty. The film also stars David Koechner (THE OFFICE, ANCHORMAN).
Pay for extras is $64 for up to 8 hours of filming. Anyone over 8 hours will incur overtime.
